As expected, the president took to Twitter to voice his thoughts on Kathy Griffin’s latest publicity stunt.

Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

In his defense, beheading the President of the United States for a photo op probably wasn’t the most well thought out method of staying relevant to the public eye. Hopefully, the free advertising will prove beneficial for Tyler Shields though. It appears that Kathy Griffin has caught all or most of the backlash, and for that, we thank you, Kathy.
